The Year of Showing Up: Part III

Note: In the first post in this three-part series, I wrote about my community’s theme for this year and what it means to show up for ourselves in our own lives.  In the second part, I focused on our collective responsibility in showing up. In this […]

Let’s Talk About Miasma

Actually, let’s not! Let’s seriously not, and let me tell you, in great detail, why not. One of the most surreal moments for me in the last decade was when a Wiccan asked for my commentary on a Heathen accusing a Hindu of “having miasma.” […]

A Whole Year @ PaganBloggers(!): Admin-not-admin notes

Today, one year into Installation Wizard, I don’t know what event I’m celebrating more. This year, (my somewhat late celebration of) the Spring Equinox in the Northern hemisphere corresponds with the #MarchForOurLives protest in Washington, DC, where students, their friends and supporters, and my peers […]

The Year of Showing Up: Part I

Our community’s year ends with the Full Moon in Cancer and, after a brief respite and rest in the liminal zone Between, begins again at Imbolc.  With each new Sisterhood year comes a new Sisterhood theme, one that organically emerges and arises to be identified […]

Some Thoughts on Dolezal

I like to keep an eye on Thomists. In my estimation, Thomism affords the most intellectually rigorous system of thought for monotheists. That isn’t to say that Thomism is true or reasonable, only that I think if one insists on being monotheist, they ought to […]

a modern Cub & Ursa Major (freeform thinking)

Not a rehash of those stories of the North Star and the constellation circling it, I fall asleep twenty two hours before the super blue blood moon eclipse enchanted by another astral body. In the space for dreaming, those two gatherings of stars, paired together […]

Is “Eclectic” a Dirty Word?

Most of what I write, when I write about deities, is about the Hellenic pantheon. There’s nothing wrong with that part of my spirituality, but I’m watching myself stagnate. I’m not as generative as I once was, and I’m not writing or researching as much […]
